Gaza Strip: Israel hits Palestinian fishing boat, kills Palestinian teenager
An Israeli navy vessel sank a Palestinian ship off the coast of the southern Gaza strip on Saturday, Israel Radio reported on Saturday morning. According to the report, the Palestinian boat had entered prohibited waters and "ignored an order to stop." The Israeli navy then fired on the boat, killing a 22-year-old man, Palestinian medics said.
The medics said the Palestinian killed in the incident had been on a fishing trip.
Earlier and in another incident, Israeli soldiers shot dead a Palestinian teenager near the Gaza Strip border on Friday night after he and two others tried to cross into Israel, Palestinian medics said, according to Reuters. All three were hit by Israeli fire.
Palestinian medics said two boys - Anqar Atta Abu Libdeh, 17, and Zuhdi Nafez Shahin, 19 - were wounded and one - Sayyed Abdalhadi Abu Libdeh, 16 - was found dead with a bullet hole in his head. The Palestinians were unarmed and likely wanted to find work in Israel.
